The seven universities represented by the IUA are implementing risk mitigation measures across our campuses and are developing detailed contingency plans to respond to the evolving Coronavirus crisis. Our absolute priority is to protect the health and well-being of our staff, students and visitors.
The IUA has established a liaison group with senior representatives from each of the seven universities to help coordinate those plans and to share information on a daily basis.
With almost 150,000 staff and students, including close to 20,000 international students, the universities have put in place a range of detailed contingency measures to respond to the situation as it develops. These measures cover plans to maintain the continuity of academic activities so far as possible, but also the management of on-campus student accommodation as well as sports, recreational and cultural facilities that bring visitors into the universities.
The Universities are ready to act in the best interests of the country in these unprecedented times and will liaise closely with the HSE, the Chief Medical Officer, the Higher Education Authority/Department of Education and Skills to co-ordinate proportionate responses if and when required.
